Sunglasses - Go big or Go home


See what I mean – Go big or Go home. Look out for glasses which ave mirrored lenses, and additional flaps and ears to give you the fashion edge. Just be sure that if you are tempted to pick up a cheap pair that they are actually protecting your eyes from the sun. WebMD has this to say;

Most decent sunglasses protect against UVB. If they also protect against UVA, they should say so. Buy good quality glasses – look for those carrying the CE mark and the British Standard BS EN 1836:2005, which ensures that they offer a good degree of UV protection. They should fit close to the face or wrap around. Some people like dark tints, but the UV-blocking coating is the same on any colour. Polarised lenses may be more comfortable for those working outside because they block glare.

So keep an eye out for those all important factors in your sunglasses. Ballymena Today is here to give you the advice your need to be on trend and look after you eye when picking new sunglasses.
